«Communication design - it is not just drawing meaningless pictures, but it is creating pictures, aimed at target audience and designed for business projects’ promotion. Today, design becomes a speaker, which starts immediate and rapidly developing conversation with product consumers. Modern design is important information guide, and designer - is a master of an instant communication, who can replace “a slow word” with «a quick picture».
